PS4 and Xbox One cross play silently enabled in Fornite

PS4 and Xbox One cross play silently enabled in Fornite

The cross-console connection became apparent because of a little-known naming convention between the two consoles: Microsoft's Xbox Live allows players to use spaces in their online handle, while Sony's PlayStation Network does not. "I searched for his tag with an underscore on Playstation Network without any luck". The problem is, even for games like Minecraft and Rocket League that offer cross-play between PC, Xbox One, Nintendo systems, and mobile phones, Sony nearly never wants to play along.

The post creator, PRE_-CISION-_ noticed when playing that they were killed by a player with a username not found on PSN.

Sadly, Kotaku reports, it was a mistake on the developers part, rather than a new feature.

Another Reddit user called "PyroBlack76" posted a picture of himself playing the game on an Xbox One against his son on an Playstation 4. As confirmed by Eurogamer, Epic Games has stated that the cross-network play in Fortnite was simply an error.




So, assuming all of this is legitimate and not just some massive mix up, it would appear that cross play has indeed been enabled in Fortnite.

So far, Epic Games has yet to confirm or deny that it has implemented cross-console play in Fortnite.

Would enabling cross-play online be a smart move from Microsoft or Sony? So starting two days ago, when Fortnite players on PS4 reported encountering Xbox One players in-game, it came as quite a shock. Ryan added, "To my knowledge, there is no live conversation [about cross-console play] ongoing at the moment".
